Sunderland, Holy Trinity Printer Friendly Version

This handsome brick and stone church was built in 1718–19, perhaps designed by William Etty, who certainly played a part in fitting out the interior. Then in a quiet situation on the edge of a lively and vigorous port: now, again, surrounded by open spaces. In 1735 the apse and its ‘Venetian’ window were added, the west gallery and a new roof in about 1803, but many of the 1719 furnishings remain. The interior is brightly lit through large clear windows and has many appealing features: the striking baroque chancel arch, an elegant font with a richly ornamented cover, west end stalls for constables, overseers and sidesmen, the fine memorial to the Revd Robert Gray (1838), and much else.
